the answer to your question is the head will fit the harness you cut the plugs for vtec(with wires) you run your own wires needed to the ecu. and you need a knock sensor also you need an vtec ecu from a auto or you will have a cel on. and also get the intake manifold but from a auto vtec the manual dont have the needed kick down cable hookup for the trans. it will help with the gain+
